12-9-22 Nicole Sandler Show – Lisa Graves on This Week’s SCOTUS Cases and More

  Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!)     This week the Extreme Supreme Court heard two consequential cases that could affect millions of same sex married couples, and could enable state legislatures to upend our election systems, potentially allowing what Trump attempted in 2020 but couldn't. Today, we're joined by friend of the show Lisa Graves,  executive director/founder of TrueNorthResearch, who served as Deputy Assistant Attorney General under AG's Janet Reno and John Ashcroft in the Clinton and W Bush administrations, so she knows of what she speaks!

11-21-22 Nicole Sandler Show – Starting the Week with Digby

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!)   With all that's transpired in this country over the past few weeks, I figured today was a good day to take look at the big picture. And who better to have that conversation with than Heather Digby Parton! Whether you read her at Salon or visit her long running Hullabaloo, Digby should be on your daily reading list. https://youtu.be/3mkac59n4ns

9-30-22 Nicole Sandler Show – Special Master and Other Disasters

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!)   There is no such thing as a slow news day any more. With so much happening, we'll just hone in on two stories today. And they both deal with disaster, though of different varieties. Hurricane Ian - huge disaster. Here in Florida, where I live, the damage and despair is everywhere, even in the safe pocket in the southeastern section that probably the safest place to be in the whole state. Today, I think everyone here is feeling incredibly lucky. In fact, [...]

6-23-22 Nicole Sandler Show – Gun Nuts and Magats and Trolls on Day 5

  Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!)   Well, we knew it was coming. The Supreme Court is finally handing down its decisions in the remaining cases from this term. They disposed of five this morning, will release a few more tomorrow, and finish it off early next week. Among the cases are a few biggies, and they announced one of them today. In NY State Rifle and Pistol Assn v Bruen, this illegitimate Supreme Court just overturned New York's law against concealed carry unconstitutional, thereby giving Americans license [...]

6-22-22 Nicole Sandler Show – Consulting with our Legal Expert Lisa Graves

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!)   It's been a busy week, and it's only Wednesday. But today gives us a break in the considerable legal activity this week. Monday was a holiday. Tuesday gave us five new opinions from the Supreme Court in the morning, followed by another mind blowing hearing from the House Select Committee investigating the events surrounding the Jan 6 attack on the Capitol. Things pick up again tomorrow morning at 10ET, as the court will release more end-of-term opinions (still 13 to go as [...]

5-4-22 Nicole Sandler Show – One Step Up and Fifty Years Back

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!) I'm still reeling from the leaked draft of a SCOTUS opinion that we weren't supposed to see for another seven or eight weeks. But thanks to someone with a conscience who had access to the first draft of Justice Alito's opinion in the case that will determine the future of women's right to choose what happens with our bodies, we have the information early. That should allow our side to fight back effectively, but it is the Democratic Party we're talking about here, [...]

3-25-22 Nicole Sandler Show – The KBJ Confirmation Hearings and other Legal Atrocities with Lisa Graves

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!) Thank goodness that's over! I'm talking about the Senate Judiciary Committee confirmation hearings for Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson to the Supreme Court. It was, to use an ugly but fitting term, a modern day lynching. The Republicans on the committee went for blood. They mercilessly attacked the most qualified candidate for the court that's been nominated in decades. Today, I'll try to present some of the high and low points of the last four days. I'll be joined by my favorite legal expert. [...]

3-22-22 Nicole Sandler Show – Tuesdays with GottaLaff (and Kentanji Brown Jackson)

  Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!)   GottaLaff joins me every other Tuesday to talk about what's happening in our world, much of the news culled from Laffy's Twitter feed. Today however, is Day 2 in the Supreme Court Senate confirmation hearings for Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson. And yes, the Republicans on the committee have all made spectacles of themselves, despite the declarations yesterday that these hearings would NOT be a circus. I guess Lindsey Graham, John Cornyn, Ted Cruz, Marsha Blackburn and the rest of the party [...]

3-7-22 Nicole Sandler Show – Mystal Monday: Elie Retorts!

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!)   I've been horribly disillusioned by the corporate media, especially the outlets that purport to serve a progressive audience. But I do have to thank MSNBC for introducing me to the always brilliant Elie Mystal. I've been honored by his presence on this program a few times, and am thrilled to welcome him back today as his new book, Allow Me To Retort: A Black Guy's Guide to the Constitution was just released. Elie's premise that the constitution is "trash" raised some eyebrows [...]

12-14-21 Nicole Sandler Show – Contemptuous with Lisa Graves

  Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!) Our favorite legal expert Lisa Graves of True North Research joins in at the top of the show.  Our conversation mostly centers on the contempt of Congress charges against Mark Meadows and the significance of the text messages he received on January 6, imploring him to get Trump to stop the siege, that we learned of last night. I also ask about the Supreme Court's ruling on the Texas abortion case, which allows the law prohibiting all abortions after six weeks to [...]
